Our Best Traveler's Prayer Jewelry & Amulets from Israel
When traveling, according to Jewish tradition, one should say Tefilat HaDerech - the Traveler's Prayer. The prayer is generally said when leaving the city limits or about halfway through one's journey, whether on a car trip of more than an hour, or flying halfway across the world. Reciting this prayer is believed to invoke Divine protection and keep you safe throughout the trip. There are a few different versions of the Traveler's Prayer from Scriptures (notably Psalms 91 and 121) and from Rabbinic tradition, all poignant and beautiful.
Traveler's Prayer jewelry is just what the traveler in your life needs to keep them safe, whether they're driving, flying, biking, or sailing.
